While the name of OnePlus’s next flagship is still under debate, a leak has revealed the renders and specs of the upcoming smartphone. OnePlus usually splits its flagship product release into two, with one happening in the first half of the year and the other scheduled for the second half of the year. The phones planned for release in the year’s second half are usually refreshed variants powered by a more powerful chipset and running a new OS.

A new flagship phone might not be the only product to expect from OnePlus in the second half of 2022. Back in December 2021, it was reported that the Chinese brand would release its first tablet in H1 2022, but that hasn’t happened yet. And with just a few weeks left in June, it doesn’t seem poised for release anytime soon. However, it might have had its release postponed to later in 2022. Oppo, its parent company, has already released two tablets this year, one of which is the Oppo Pad. Knowing OnePlus, one of these tablets may get a global release with its brand name on it.

For its next flagship, OnePlus seems to be going with a design based on the OnePlus 10 Pro and OnePlus 10R. As seen in the renders shared by Yogesh Brar (@heyitsyogesh) in collaboration with Onsitego, the phone is shown to have a centered punch hole for the front-facing camera, and the display is flat like that of the OnePlus 10R. However, the back of the phone closely resembles the OnePlus 10 Pro with its camera array. In addition, OnePlus has slightly modified the design as the camera island appears to be a seamless fuse with the rest of the back panel. Appealing as the design is, fans of the brand will be disappointed at the lack of the Alert Slider, which appears to have become a rarity on OnePlus phones these days.

Another OnePlus Phone That Charges At 150W

Alongside the images are a bunch of specifications too. The display is reported to be a 6.7-inch AMOLED panel with a 1080p resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate. According to the source, the phone was initially supposed to launch with the Dimensity 9000 processor under the hood, but there was a last-minute change to the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1. There is no mention of the RAM, nor does the report say anything about available storage variants.

For the cameras, the phone will have a 50MP primary sensor with OIS, a 16MP ultrawide angle camera, and a 2MP sensor for shooting macro photos. For selfies, the phone will ship with a 32MP sensor capable of recording in 1080p at 30 frames per second. The phone packs a 4800mAh battery, and unlike the OnePlus 10 Pro, which supports 80W fast charging or 65W fast charging as is the case with the U.S. model, OnePlus’s upcoming flagship will support 150W fast charging. Unfortunately, it won’t have support for wireless charging. However, OnePlus still ships its phones with a charger and cable in the box, so this phone should be no different.

Another surprising detail is that the phone will ship with OxygenOS 12 based on Android 12 out of the box and not Android 13. This could mean its release date is before the release of the stable version of Android 13. Other features of the phone are stereo speakers and an in-display fingerprint scanner. OnePlus is expected to announce the phone in India in July, but there is no specific date yet. It is also not known if it will get sold in the U.S.
